Ten Students Participate in WRITE Program

In January, ten UW medical students began five months of clinical training in small towns as part of the WWAMI Rural Integrated Training Experience (WRITE) program. The program is in its ninth year.

The WRITE program enables a medical student to spend several months getting to know a rural community, the local physicians, and the physicians' patients. Unlike clinical rotations that divide along specialty lines, the WRITE rotation exposes a student to the diversity of rural practice. The training incorporates internal medicine, family medicine, pediatrics, surgery, psychiatry, obstetrics/gynecology, and other fields.

The 2005 WRITE participants and their training sites are:
Ian Bonner, Wasilla, Alaska
Jacob Gray, McCall, Idaho
Barbara Jones, Hailey, Idaho
Kathleen Maxfield, Colfax, Wash.
Lindy McLandress, Sandpoint, Idaho
John Pope, Ellensburg, Wash.
Nathaniel Schlicher, Kenai/Soldatna, Alaska
Jill Stevenson, Lewiston, Idaho
Charlotte Stiles, Powell, Wyo.
Errol Hull, Libby, Mont.
